Back out again after the Sahara dust passed! We've had a lot of rain recently but I took a look outside around 11pm and things seemed promising so I set up. 

I'm still trying to find my happy medium with Jupiter so I processed this slightly less hard than previously. Seeing got better as the night went on but I couldn't stay awake for the GRS to rotate into view - next time!  These are the two images just over 30 minutes apart. 

It's cool to see the the two lines of cloud appearing to feed into the darker oval in the south.

Yes the Sahara dust passed through our area in south Georgia last Friday and cleared
out late Sunday.
That Friday the sky had a yellowish slightly reddish color to it. I felt like I was
on MARS. Reminded me of some Mars movies of the past.

Yeah that was a crazy amount of dust! It was the worse it's ever been here - it even caused the air quality readings to hit the worst level possible and we were advised to avoid prolonged exposure outside. I'm reading now that there's another band of dust coming in for us... hopefully it doesn't remain for long!

I know your country has had a lot of challenges lately but it would be nice if your countries tourist bureau should use your body of images to promote P.R!  Get those astro tourists booking up any spare accommodation  for 2021 smile.gif.  If I was not tied down with my family for the next few years....

 

These latest are also great images,  I felt that I was watching Jupiter rotate through some powerful futuristic pair of night vision glasses.

Yeah it definitely seems like Puerto Rico could be a really good spot for planetary imaging! You got the seeing at night and then the beaches and good food during the day. Tropical holiday for the family and imaging for yourself at night. Haha, I think I could sell it to the tourism industry - cloudynights holiday location wink.gif Plus since its a US territory you get good flight deals and you could even catch a cruise at the end of your stay!
